    Vegetables gardens, on the other hand, are a crazy amount of work. You have several days at the beginning of the season getting everything ready to plant and doing the planting. Then you have a few hours every week just weeding them. Finally, at the end of the year, you several more days harvesting, canning (or otherwise preserving) and getting the gardens all cleaned up for winter. And after all that, you are left with a bunch of shitty vegetables you have to eat!

    I suggested to Mrs Inor that it would be a much better use of our time to just grow a few onions and hot peppers this year. Then we would have the benefit of living on a diet consisting of just meat, onions and hot peppers. It seems like a great idea to me. She vetoed it...
    Damn! I love the way you think! So, you gave Mrs Inor veto power?

    You guys are all old enough to know "veto power" is not a power that is "given"...

    Yeah, but I always try to negotiate that part.
